Lalu Yadav’s son Tej Pratap files for divorce, cites incompatibility with wife Aishwarya

Aishwarya Rai, an MBA graduate, is the daughter of former Bihar minister Chandrika Rai

RJD supremo Lalu Yadav’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav, who got married in a lavish ceremony to Aishwarya Rai, the daughter of former minister Chandrika Rai,                has reportedly filed for divorce. As per reports, Yadav filed for divorce at a Patna court yesterday.

Tej Pratap’s advocate has stated that the couple had incompatibility issues.

Tej Pratap had married Aishwarya in May 2018. As per reports, Tej Pratap is seeking divorce under the sections 13 (1) (1A) that deals with cruelty by the spouse. His petition is reportedly scheduled for a hearing in Patna civil court on November 29. Reports claim that the divorce proceedings might not be smooth as the Hindu Marriage Act does not usually grant a divorce within a year of marriage.

As soon as news of the divorce petition circulated there are many reports emerging hinting at the possible causes of the rift between the newly married couple. As Lalu Yadav was convicted in the fodder scam earlier this year, the marriage between two powerful political families of Bihar had attracted attention because there were hints that Aishwarya might join politics too.

Reports of conflicts and trouble within the Yadav family have been around since long. Earlier, there were reports of a possible rivalry between Tej Pratap and his younger brother Tejaswi, who was the deputy CM of Bihar in the RJD-JDU alliance government. Tej Pratap is also an MLA and was the health minister when RJD held power.

The Yadav family is also facing probe from central agencies like ED and CBI in several scams. The Income Tax department has also seized many of the benami properties belonging to Lalu’s family.

It is notable here that Tej Pratap has always managed to be in the news for his behaviour and activities. On occasions, he had dressed up as Krishna or Lord Shiva. He had also accused Bihar CM Nitish Kumar of unleashing ‘ghosts’ to haunt the Yadav family.
